" It continually amazes me how you can do four nights in a row at the Fillmore playing six or seven hours each night. "
What dates , if any , did they play that long ? 3 sets with an hour set break ? That's a whole other act that BG could put on the marque and charge more for tics . ( I know $5 to $7.) The tape length of shows and 6 hours of playing just do not add up . I think if they played for 6 hours in '68 the band and audience would have had spontaneous combustion .

"In New York, you can't get a moment's peace. I mean, not a moment's peace. You can't go and sit somewhere and get your head together and cool yourself out a little before you play, 'cause, like, there's a million people going 'Ahhhhh!' I mean, it's weird. "
" Just like New York City .... " What did he expect ? :-)

The 5/15/70, 6/24/70 and 11/8/70 shows are all pretty epic in length micah6:8. Jerry and Mickey played all night with both bands, the Dead and New Riders.

There are several confirmed nights at the Fillmore East in Feb and July 1970 where the band played from midnight til dawn. As mentioned in this thread:

Of course our tapes are not that long, because a huge chunk of that time must have been setbreaks.
